2012 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Wei Long

Looks like Bugatti is joining in on the party that is the 2012 Beijing Auto Show.

In what could be one of the busiest Beijing Auto Shows in recent memory, the French automaker has decided that attending the show isn’t enough anymore. So they decided to steal it with the presentation of a one-off Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport that they have christened as "Wei Long."

Developed in collaboration with Konigliche Porzellan Manufaktur (KPM) Berlin, the Veyron Grand Sport Wei Long is Bugatti’s version of paying homage to the Year of the Dragon. Everybody’s doing it anyway, right?

As far as the car itself is concerned, the Wei Long comes equipped with unique porcelain dragon relief sections on both the exterior and interior. It’s similar to the set-up of the Veyron L’Or Blanc , except that this model was developed primarily for the deep pockets of the Chinese.

The exterior is finished in White Polish and greatly complements the Carmine Red interior. The headrests and hand-crafted silk floor mats have been embossed with the Chinese ’Dragon’ character to go with a special centerpiece with an elaborately detailed white porcelain dragon relief.

Just like all the one-off Veyron Grand Sport models in the world, the Wei Long is powered by an 8.0-liter W16 engine that develops a total of 1,001 horsepower and 1,250 Nm of torque. Those figures are good enough to post a 0-60 mph time of just 2.7 seconds with a top speed of 252 mph. And just like all those other one-off models, the Veyron Grand Sport isn’t for the weak of pockets.

For the privilege of owning this porcelain-dressed supercar, you’re going to need to shell out €1.58 million, which is a smudge over $2 million based on current exchange rates.

Wow. Bugatti is really getting popular. I just hope that they will show some incredible car in the show.

Do you think he has a good collection of the Bugatti? I like the performances of all Bugatti models from before and the latest.

I like it what he have done on this Bugatti. His personalization is superb and truly one of a kind.

This has nothing to do with those suparcars already on China right? Or they will bring it there also leaving US with nothing?

It’s figures are good enough to post this 0-60 MPH time at 2.7 seconds having a top speed of 252 MPH. As we all know on this Bugatti, this is also for the richer pockets.

If you wanted to have privilege of owning a super car, you’re going to throw out €1.58 million. It worth the price to think on its quality and unbeatable performance.

I see Bugatti a couple of times. But I am still amazed with its looks and performance. I can’t imagine what would I feel if I’m the one who is driving it.

When this car passed in front of you, the idea of knowing that the car is a Bugatti vehicle will strike in the first place upon hearing the roar of its engine.

From the grabs it has right now, I can say that they can now make the races for the Bugatti lineups.

A lot of features will make you proud on this Wei Long most especially the handcrafted materials from the exterior.

It’s brilliant exterior teases me a lot. It carries the elegance credit that on Wei Long.

Wow. This Wei Long is a very interesting one. I love its porcelain-like exterior that stands-out on the road.

Bugatti will surely catch the attention of supercars enthusiasts. It will surely be a great event to showcase what this car can do.
